MIBRomeo (2567) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Dark pour full fluffy tan head. Aroma of light hops a bit of anise but covered by a big dose of slightly bitter chocolates and a bit of syrupy sweetness. Full well coated palate. Flavor followed the aroma. Delicious porter.

zizzybalubba (1503) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - MAY 6, 2013
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Dark brown cola-like pour with a quick head. Aroma of roasted coffee, chocolate, and light floral hops. Taste is espresso, smoke, and dark chocolate with hints of licorice. The dark roasted malt does not leave an overwhelming presence on the palate. A solid porter.

gunnar (5676) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2013

AWISLguy (1423) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle from Downer Wine & Spirits. Pours a near opaque black with a light tan head leaving a lot of spotty lacing. Luscious! Aroma has molasses and chocolate with some roast. Taste is of sweet chocolate, some roast and some fruitiness. Fairly thin. Solid flavor palate on the more sweet side of bittersweet. Finishes a bit short. Expecting a bit more from DH due to their other porters and stouts.

caesar (5321) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2013
Bottled. Dark color, short brown head. Aroma is salty, blackcurrant, roasted malts, coffee, some milk chocolat, hint of bacon. Quite dry in taste, though there is some sweetness as well, hint of sour (coffeewise). Bitterness mostly from the malts. Quite astringent because of the dryness and the soft sourness, because of the high amount of dark malts I guess. To be honest, thereís nothing wrong with the beer, but itís just not my personal favorite taste.

bytemesis (3519) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark opaque brown black with a small tan head that dissipates quickly with some lacing. Very roasty aroma, with notes of coffee, cigarettes, perhaps anise. Flavor the same, light sweet, not a lot of bitterness, but definitely a coffee and cigarettes feel, with some chocolate. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel Good effort.

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - APR 14, 2013
A nice, easily drinkable porter. The body was just right, not too thin or bold - allowing for a satisfying bitter finish full of cocoa and soft molasses. Thanks for the share, Jordan.

OmegaX (1283) - Florida, USA - APR 14, 2013
Thanks for the bottle, Jason. Aroma is roast, some vanilla, dark chocolate, and molasses. Pour is oily black with a tan head. Palate is oily, too. Roasted flavors and molasses dominate this brew with a slight coffee and sweet sugary finish.

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 6, 2013
Bottle from samís. pours medium mohageny brown with a thin an head. Nose is sweet, sugary brownie, light roast. Flavor is similar; overly sweet cocoa, vanilla, sweetness, not ebought roast. Surprising for this brewery which is usually proficient with darker roastier styles.

On tap. Aroma has notes of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts, piney hops. Very dark brown hue with an average tan head. Flavor is medium sweet and bitter. Palate is medium bodied with an average carbonation and a long bitter finish. Overall a good coffee porter.
